Origin: European Chestnut, also referred to as Sweet Chestnut or Spanish Chestnut, originates from Europe and Asia Minor.
Color: European Chestnut ranges from tan to medium-brown and often will darken to a red-brown as it ages. All of our European Chestnut has been fumed with ammonia. This darkens the heartwood to a rich dark brown almost black color. It is important to note that the company that fumes our wood uses a process that darkens the heartwood all the way through unlike other processes that just darken the surface of the wood. Note: This process doesn’t affect the sapwood so the edges are left a light tan and create a defined contrast.
Janka Hardness: 680 (soft). Similar in hardness to Douglas Fir.
Decay and Weather Resistance: European Chestnut is rated as very durable and rot resistant.
Workability: It is generally easy to work with by hand or machine. It glues, stains, and finishes well; however, there may be splitting so you must take care when using nails or screws.
Uses: European Chestnut is commonly used for fine furniture (indoor and outdoor), cabinetry, veneer, and carving
